Xtext is the de facto standard framework for the development of sophisticated domain specific languages (DSLs) in the Eclipse ecosystem and beyond. Even though the framework already provides a buckload of important features, we won’t become tired rethinking the architecture at scale or smaller features in isolation. Since Xtext version 2.20 is in the works, it’s about time to unveil a few of the planned features and work items.
The growth of complexity of systems requires to redesign the way we capture functions and architectural choices by moving from manual, non-scalable, document-oriented processes to models. Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is a systems engineering methodology that focuses on creating and exploiting domain models as the primary means of information exchange between engineers. Still today MBSE adoption among systems engineers is growing slowly. It is critical for industry to understand the difficulties of users and to find a way to democratize MBSE to a wide audience.
The modeling community is among the most active and diverse in Eclipse's ecosystem. The modeling symposium aims to provide a forum for community members to present a brief overview of their work. We will encourage 10 minute lightning talks to facilitate a broad range of speakers. The primary goal is to introduce new and interesting technologies. We will open up an informal call for submissions from the community. We will select from from those the submissions to provide a diverse slate of talks with a focus on areas not represented by other longer talks at this year's EclipseCon.
“The easiest way to get your own Modelling tool” – claims Sirius.
But does Sirius really have what it takes to build an industrial scale project visualization and cover all the corner use cases. Sirius comes with its own challenges. We at Bosch pushed Sirius to its limits and developed a tool to visualize, optimize and analyse huge automotive models.
Attend this talk to discover what are the industrial solutions available today to create a web-ready modeling tool.
The tooling trends are to go to the web. The Eclipse community members are making lots of efforts to transition the existing modeling frameworks (EMF, Sirius, GLSP…) to be cloud ready. But this is still the beginning of the story preparing the foundation for the future of web-based tooling.
Sirius is an Eclipse project that allows you to easily represent and edit information in a visual way.
Based on EMF, a workbench designed with Sirius provides a set of graphical model editors (diagrams, tables, trees, properties view) integrated in the Eclipse environment. The creation of this workbench is greatly simplified by the ability to test the editors in real time.
Eclipse Sirius is a field-proven technology for creating graphical modeling workbenches. The technology has been used in production for more than 10 years and led to the creation of an impressive number of graphical modelers. The Sirius website gallery demonstrates 45 of those workbenches recorded over the years.
Graphical visualization of data models is very essential to get an overview of its complexity and understand the big picture. It is a debatable point regarding how much effort a project can spend in developing graphical visualization for the data model.
Dragomir will demonstrate how you can build your own e-commerce business application using the Eclipse Dirigible features for low-code/no-code development that include:
• entity data modeling
• generating a full-stack application with an administrative UI
• generating a pie chart with revenues ordered by category
• modeling a simple purchase order process
• building an extension from scratch for custom end user facing UI
